Bin Laden Blasts US Over ‘Climate Change’

From his media outlet, Al Jazeera:

Bin Laden deplores climate change

Friday, January 29, 2010

Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader, has condemned the US and other industrial economies, holding them responsible for the phenomenon of climate change.

You would think Mr. Bin Laden would be grateful for a warmer world, living in a cave as he does.

Still, every day it gets harder and harder to tell Mr. Laden’s complaints from those of the average run of the mill leftist – like Mr. Obama.

In an audio tape obtained by Al Jazeera, bin Laden criticised George Bush, the former US president, for rejecting the Kyoto pact and condemned global corporations.

He blames George Bush. Check.

"This is a message to the whole world about those responsible for climate change and its repercussions – whether intentionally or unintentionally – and about the action we must take," bin Laden said.

"Speaking about climate change is not a matter of intellectual luxury – the phenomenon is an actual fact."

Global warming is ‘settled science.’ Check.

In the new recording, bin Laden says "all the industrial states" are to blame for climate change, "yet the majority of those states have signed the Kyoto Protocol and agreed to curb the emission of harmful gases".

He continued: "However, George Bush junior, preceded by [the US] congress, dismissed the agreement to placate giant corporations. And they are themselves standing behind speculation, monopoly and soaring living costs.

"They are also behind ‘globalisation and its tragic implications’. And whenever the perpetrators are found guilty, the heads of state rush to rescue them using public money."

He blames the United States and greedy, evil corporations. Check.

In the new recording, bin Laden said: "Noam Chomsky [the US academic and political commentator] was correct when he compared the US policies to those of the Mafia.

He cites Noam Chomsky. Check.

(Though we can only wonder why he doesn’t cite Saul Alinsky.)

They are the true terrorists and therefore we should refrain from dealing in the US dollar and should try to get rid of this currency as early as possible.

"I am certain that such actions will have grave repercussions and huge impact."

He calls America the true terrorists, and wants a boycott against the US dollar. Check.

While continuing to attack America, bin Laden’s comments mark a shift from his earlier, more regionally focused commentary.

In his previous tape, bin Laden warned that there would be further attacks on the US unless Barack Obama, the current US president, took steps to resolve the Palestinian conflict…

The Palestinian conflict is so passé. ‘Climate change’ is where it’s at, man.

Besides, maybe Mr. bin Laden wants a government grant.

And why not, since we are about to put a chicken in every pot and a car bomb in every garage in Afghanistan.

Then they will love us for sure.

The Obama administration dismissed bin Laden’s comments on the earlier tape and said intelligence analysts had not confirmed that the voice was that of bin Laden.

What’s this? Is Mr. Obama going to start throwing doubts on whether Mr. Bin Laden is still alive?

Is that going to be his lame excuse for not finding him after more than a year?

By the way, it would seem that Mr. Bin Laden is not getting the latest news updates.

From a joyous Reuters:

U.S. formally embraces Copenhagen climate deal

Thu Jan 28, 2010

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States on Thursday formally notified the United Nations that it has embraced the Copenhagen Accord setting nonbinding goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions that was negotiated last month.

Todd Stern, the top U.S. climate negotiator for the Obama administration, also gave notice that, as expected, it will aim for a 17 percent reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases blamed for global warming by 2020, with 2005 as the base year.

A final emissions reduction target will be submitted, the U.S. said, once the U.S. Congress enacts domestic legislation requiring carbon pollution cuts. But such legislation has an uncertain fate in the Senate.

So are we loved now?

    When will Mr. Bin Laden win his Nobel Peace Prize?

    This is hiliarous!

    BinLaden is just like all the other liberals, all talk and no action himself.

    Why, just think of the carbon footprint of 9/11, what with all those planes and the burning WTC and Pentagon.

  3. mr_bill says:

    Bin Laden still believes in the climate change hoax, does he live in a cav….er, nevermind.

  4. Right of the People says:

    Bin Laden lives in 6th century conditions and wants the rest of the world to too.

    I guess jihad just isn’t what it used to be of course this could explain why they are so fixated on our airplanes, they have a much bigger carbon footprint than a flying carpet.

  5. tranquil.night says:

    Also like the Left, bin Hidin’ completely forgets the fact that even though the United States repealed Kyoto, it was the only one to meet the desired emission reductions of the treaty.

    Climate Change IS national security, according to the President; it’s clear Al Qaeda attacked us on 9/11 to alert our attention to an even bigger problem. Am I smelling a more moderate replacement for Carol Browner the climate czar?

  6. proreason says:

    Isn’t handing your enemies weapons that can destroy you a form of suicide?

    It would probably be more fair and make the world a better place if we just gave Al Queda nuclear weapons. After all, we have been opressing them since 9/11, and centuries before that, for legitimately expressing their unhapiness with our empire-building, and the poverty imposed by us on them. Obamy points this out all the time, so it must be true. And it just isn’t right.

    If we gave them nuclear weapons, they would have nothing to be pissed off about because they would be equal to us. We could begin cooperating with them just like we do with Republicans when they aren’t being assholes.

    Yeh, that’s the ticket.

    Rush is talking about this post right now

    Are we sure Obama and Osama aren’t the same person? It’s beginning to get hard to tell them apart these days.

    My big question is…How in the world did Miclael Moore find this guy and the American government can’t? We just need to put a tail on Moore…seems he’s been able to educate Osama on climate change.

    Steve said, “Is this going to be his lame excuse for not finding him after more than a year?

    Steve you may be expecting a bit too much. Michael Moore isn’t in the best shape, he was without air conditioning in his tent, and I understand his camel broke down a few times. I imagine it took a while to get to Osama’s cave.

    I also heard that Moore bought a bunch of carbon credits from Osama for Gore. He now has enough to run all Gores houses and air travel for a year.

    Did he issue a fatwah? I just won’t listen to the guy unless he issues a fatwah.

    Al Jazeera knows that while Obama ignored the Christmas eve bomb attack connection, that Congressman Keith Ellison (AKA 1st muslim congressman to swear on Koran *, **), is shouting for war crimes charges against Israel. Fearful trembling 50 plus Democrats & liberal orgs have written Obama to press Israel.

    Osama: therefore we should refrain from dealing in the US dollar and should try to get rid of this currency as early as possible.

    Obama: I’m working as fast as I can to make one world order currency, but China floated war ships when I first mentioned it in early days of my presidency.
    Also, my recent selling of weapons to Taiwan has China angry, but I’ve got a behind closed doors deal. Those national parks I mentioned in my first days of office at MO town hall meeting being closed in 2 years. The Indians noticed this and are trying to back land, but it won’t happen. China will
    love all that reservation land.

    * Muslims, according to the Quran, must fight and kill in the name of Allah, whether they like it or not. Quran 2:216

    **The Quran is militantly anti-Judeo-Christian. It refers to non-Muslims as unbelievers, hypocrites and infidels directing Muslims to “make war” against them so they might be sent to their “homes in hell.” (Surah 9:73)

    Correction: US selling “Taiwan” weapons has led to new US bad relations w/ China
    no longe

    I liked this guy much better when he had those Moon Shadow & Peace Train hits in the 70’s don’t you?

  12. Rip Cord says:

    Is Usama going to challange Obama in the Democratic Primaries in 2012? He sure is postioning himself……………..

  13. Tater Salad says:

    Osama bin Laden and Barack Obama have a couple things in common.

    1. Osama lives in a cave, worries about climate change and wishes he had a Nobel Peace Prize on his cave wall. Something like a Democrat wouldn’t you say?

    2. Obama lives in the White House and is surrounded by a bunch of socialists thinking about how to rip off the taxpayers using climate change as the platform while carrying around his Nobel Peace Prize on his shoulder and looking in the mirror. By listening to his State of the Union speech and hearing him say “I” 96 times, this is proof. Something like a Democrat wouldn’t you say?

    • Reality Bytes says:

      Ok Everybody! You say Obama, And I say Osama, You say Osama, And I say Obama, Osama, Obama, Obama, Osama, Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off! (Like in 2012 when hopefully both will be long gone)

    • MinnesotaRush says:

      I like the way you think, RB; I just can’t say all that too fast. :-)
